HOUSTON, Texas — The Ammons Law Firm has filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Postal Service on behalf of a Texas man who suffered a traumatic brain injury and life-altering orthopedic injury in a crash. The collision happened when a post office employee disregarded a red light at a Houston intersection.
The postal employee ran through the intersection and crashed his postal service vehicle into the vehicle Ammons’ client was driving, causing serious and permanent injuries to his face, neck, brain and back.
Filed in the Houston Division of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, the suit alleges that the U.S. Postal Service was negligent in its failure to manage its drivers properly and safely, and negligent in its failure to train its employee on safe driving practices and safe operation of a government vehicle.
Postal employees have a duty to act as a reasonable and cautious government vehicle operator under the circumstances.
The plaintiff alleges that the employee breached those duties by running the red light and causing the crash, and by failing to control speed, keep a proper lookout, apply his brakes in a timely manner and take evasive actions.
“We trust one another to follow the rules of the road when we drive on public roadways,” said Rob Ammons, founder and managing partner of The Ammons Law Firm. “The U.S. Postal Service broke that trust in this case, and its negligence has caused my client life-altering injury.”
